IC 3305         
Former Illinois Central observation-lounge car 3305 was on the rear of the northbound SOUTHERN CRESCENT at Carrollton Junction. This had been the location of Carrollton Avenue Station, and the paved area next to the train was the remnant of one of the two station platforms. The car was built by the IC in 1947 for service on the CITY OF NEW ORLEANS, and was owned by the NRHS-New Orleans Chapter when this photo was taken.

Maunsel White General The guys who did all the work on it got tired of all the corrosion and decay. They wanted Stainless steel Budd cars. We got a good price and did some amazing things afterward operating cars all over the country on Amtrak and charters. No regrets. 10/29/2010 8:02:44 PM
